WhenFacedWithTruth Posted February 28, 2012 Share Posted February 28, 2012 Hello future friends, my name is Mandy. I am a 23 yr old military wife and stay at home mom to a 2 year old (will i survive these terrible twos?! :]) To make a very long story short, after I had my son, i shot down into deep depression, which of course was misdiagnosed as PPD. After a year and a half of anti depressant after anti depressant, I finally went to get evaluated about 4 months ago. Diagnosis: Bipolar Type II, Anxiety Disorder, and ADD. Surprising at first, but when I took a look back at the past 23 years, it all makes sense and it peeked after my son. So I am trying to accept it. Currently on 1 mg of Xanax at night for racing thoughts and anxiety, and 300 mg of Lamotrigine during the day. Also some Deplin, but I completely forgot the dosage. I am seeing my doctor soon about changing my meds though, the Lamotrigine seems to be really messing with my speech and thought process. So in a nut shell that's me! Looking forward to knowing you all. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
